If you’re a plumber, you buy a Transit. If you’re a farmer, you buy a tractor. If you’re an Formula 1 driver, you endeavour – these days – to get in a Mercedes-AMG F1 car.

Take the agricultural capability of a tractor, the road manners of a Transit and the badge from the Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ and you get… a Unimog.
